Why buy genuine MIFARE?
• Only NXP’s products have undergone NXP’s stringent quality procedures, including certification by authorized MIFARE Certification institutes, ensuring interoperability with all major infrastructures around the world.
• Only NXP and its licensees are offering unique 7-byte IDs for each chip. Products which cannot guarantee the uniqueness of an IC’s serial number can potentially cause immense problems in a contactless system and lead to interruptions and/or disturbances in service operations.
• Performance issues of non-genuine MIFARE products, such as shorter read range and less stability and robustness, lead to high failure rates in the field.
• With strict compliance with the ISO / IEC 14443 standard, MIFARE ensures interoperability between contactless infrastructure and credentials.
• Only NXP’s products provide consistent high levels of security, interoperability, stability and reliability across all form factor options demanded by the market for state-of-the-art contactless schemes (e.g.: key fobs, tags, stickers, wristbands, payment cards, NFC enabled smart phones, etc.) supported by the largest partner network of the industry:
• MIFARE enables service providers to expand their transportation networks and to integrate additional services such as closed-loop micro payment. All while reducing the total costs of operations. In addition, MIFARE4Mobile successfully guides the extension of the MIFARE technology platform into NFC enabled devices.
• Only genuine NXP MIFARE products are cooperatively produced at the world’s most advanced wafer fabs to ensure continuous supply of ICs to maintain service sustainability in mission critical system installations as well as future proof product evolution.
